C2 / Proficiency30 minCritical Reading ClubUnlimited Plan
This is a Critical Reading Club worksheet. With this format, students need to read an online article at home and do the exercises in the classroom. Learn more about how to use such worksheets and their benefits in our post.
The lesson starts with a quick warm-up in which students answer some simple questions to understand the difference between the words ancestors, deceased, descendants, kin. After that, they need to match seven question halves which include a lot of interesting vocabulary. Next, students have to find synonyms for eight words in the questions (e.g. objects – artefacts, solved – unravelled, discovered – unearthed). Finally, the worksheet ends with a discussion. Students discuss the questions which are related to the article they read (e.g. using artefacts for forensic examinations, what ethical quandaries genetic genealogists deal with, our descendants’ identity).
